Kindercare: Daily 2:15-3:00 pm
Kindergarten students are welcomed to the program beginning at 2:00 pm. Kinder students receive a snack, participate in enrichment classes or free time and have daily story time/rest. Parents can make arrangements through the Lower School Office to have students exiting the program at 3:20 be walked to Lincoln Avenue for pick-up. Siblings and/or parents may also come to retrieve kindergarten students from the program by properly signing them out with a counselor.
Kindergarten-Fifth Grade: 3:20-6:00 pm
Students will be greeted and checked into ASP by counselors, then led through age-appropriate activities with intermittent supervised play and/or attend ASP Enrichment classes until picked up by a parent. Students participating in ASP Enrichment Classes must be signed in and out of ASP for safety reasons, but will not be charged for time spent in classes. All students remaining on campus after 3:45 pm will automatically be signed into ASP and be charged accordingly.
Middle School: 3:30-6:00 pm
After dismissal, Middle School students are invited to take a few minutes to say goodbye to friends and take a break from the busy day before checking in to ASP. MS ASP opens at 3:30 and MS students must check in by 3:45 at the latest if they are remaining on campus. MS ASP includes time for a quiet supervised study hall, snack, and access to the Lower School ASP play areas & activities. MS students are offered the choice to stay in study hall or head outside to play and unwind. If you’d like your student to complete homework before heading outside, let our team know and we’ll remind them.
An ASP counselor is stationed inside the gatehouse doors on Lincoln Avenue to receive parents and radio for students. Students will be sent to the gatehouse doors once a parent/guardian or other authorized pick-up presents their ID to the counselor. Parents are always welcome to come down to the Lower School.
We ask that no parents call the program directly in advance to have their students sent to Lincoln Avenue. Please plan accordingly. ASP closes promptly at 6:00pm and students remaining on campus after 6:00pm will be charged $5 for the first minute and $1 per minute thereafter.
